For the player of Dragon Age Origins, getting to know more about Loghain and his relationship to Maric adds something to the game as Loghain, still a national hero, is your primary antagonist for much of the game. One of the great strengths of the Dragon Age franchise is its wealth of three dimensional characters, including many of the villains. To this end, the story in Stolen Throne helps the player better understand what's going on in Loghain's head throughout the game (while not negating the need to ultimately defeat him).
Definitely recommended for those who have played or are about to play Dragon Age Origins. Not likely to be of interest to those not interested in the video games.
I was unaware of the novels until recently. I must say that I wish I had started reading them years ago. I would have shared them with her and she would have enjoyed the amazing world as much as I have.
I look forward to reading the rest of the novels and expanding my love of this fantastic world.
My main complaint is that the ending felt a little forced and cut-off, like we missed a chapter somewhere. However, if you're a die hard Dragon Age fangirl and gamer like me, this book is a must read, particularly if you play the first game, Dragon Age: Origins. I have to say though, I wasn't a real fan of Maric after this book. I hadn't thought about him much before this, but I wasn't impressed. Definitely gives you a bit of insight into his sons and why they are the way they are and why it was a good thing one of them "got away" so to speak. (Don't want to give any spoilers).
Love Dragon Age and feel a real connection with all the characters? Buy it. Buy them all.
